I'm Martin Rowat's son and I'm trying to get him a more original christmas present this year.
I'm looking for images of the Emerson, Rowat and Smith dragster ( I've seen it called a rail and a junior fueler too) and various internet searches have yielded only three images. If you have any photographs of this dragster racing, or in the pits, anything, I would be massively grateful if you could upload them or point me in the right direction.
I know they were active around 1976 and am sure in this year they raced at Snetterton and Blackbushe.
Probably a bit late now, but have you looked on Alan Currans website: http://www.theaccelerationarchive.co.uk
? I am sure I have seen some pics of your dad's car on the 'Readers Gallery' pages. If there isn't a contact number on the page for the photographer, contact Alan himself, he is very helpful. I raced your dad on several occasions back in the mid '70's, although I never got to know him very well.
